Hey! I resemble that remark.

The real story is we rolled into Cambria, filled up the tanks, found a taco stand, and a parking place. When the rest of the crew rolled in we asked the ride leader if he had a lunch spot and he said no. Hmmm...so we watched them keep going. We had fantastic mexican as well, then rolled on thru town watching for the rest of our group - never saw them. I must be blind as a bat.

It was chilly going up the coast, we were glad to have a warmer jacket. Hwy 1 is always a treat. We missed the turn-off for the next dirt segment but saw that the track on our GPS had broken off so we went back. The real riding began there.

We were treated to a fairly steep group of switchbacks with high camber and a few inches of silt. We made it through okay, well Johngil had no trouble on his Husky 630, but it was a bit of a challenge on the big bikes. At the top the temps had warmed a good 20 deg so we stopped to air down (now instead of before the tough stuff, duh) and took off a layer of clothing.

Day 1:

Running late, I pull off the 210 freeway to let the guys know and to leave without me. Little did I know that I should have just kept on the road because the on ramp was closed putting me later than I would have been if I kept on going.


After meeting the guys in Castaic, we hit the road. Near Fraizer Park:


Joel and Isaac discussing the route near Cuddy Valley:


Blake working on his camera:


Bob ready to go:


The sun starting to set, casting long shadows:


Joel is a raver? Who knew?

We hit the road and head north. I think this is on Pozo road. Joel's chasing me down which isn't hard to do since I'm on a KLR :lol:


Bill on the VStrom sweeping the ride.


The PP's in front of Pozo Saloon:


Isaac:


Back on the road:
